FWIW, as we were beta testing, plugin users had to do factory resets. Uninstalling the plugin alone was not sufficient and problems were experienced until the device was reset. This was early on, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I will wait a bit too before updating, the Tweaks plugin is doing me fine at the moment!

Ditto. No problem here even with the plugin installed (since it automatically disables itself if the version doesn't match.) I didn't use it to enable shelves though; maybe that's was a trigger for some?

Hi,

Installing the last binary plugin works on my kobo touch, but installing from the binary built from git source does not (tweaks menu is not there). Does anyone have a clue why?

Oops, I didn't see there was a version check, i'll check I'm running 1.9.17, but I think I'm not.

I'm pretty sure the source in git is up to date. Maybe something with your development environment isn't right, such as the Qt compile flags.

You could try to edit /etc/init.d/rcS on the Kobo so it redirects nickel's output somewhere on the onboard storage and look through through it to see if you find something.

So just to be clear, you're still on 1.9.17? Even without the version check the plugin won't work with 2.0 since the Qt version seems to have changed.

Also, if the binary version works but the one you compiled doesn't there's something wrong with you build environment. If not everything matches the environment nickel was compiled in it won't load the plugin. I think there's one build flag for Qt that's required but that's not in the Kobolabs build scripts, you should find it somewhere in the beginning of this thread.

Thanks very much ah-, It worked with the new flag \o/.
Now I can start programming the beast.
Btw, does an irc chan exist for the project or for kobo programming ?

Great to hear that, have fun!

And there's #kobodev on freenode, but it's rather empty.

2.0.2 or 2.0.0 firmware

hello I am running 2.0.2(unsupported) firmware (it fixes a lot of bugs from 2.0) and was wondering if there was ANY way to get the tweaks working on my system.

Currently 2.0 is not supported, mainly because I'm busy with other things in life. Quite a lot changed since 1.9.17, so it's more work than just recompiling it.

Also I think that the toolchain at https://github.com/kobolabs/Kobo-Reader might not be up to date with the newer Qt version used in 2.0, so that would be the first step.

Plugins for Firmware 2.x

I've started working on the plugins for the 2.x firmware.

So far Qt 4.8 is compiled and the qtscript plugin is already working on my kobo with 2.1.1 firmware.

To get the plugin loaded Qt has to be compiled with some modifications for configure:

Code:
/home/mast/Development/kobo/tmp/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.0/configure -I/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/include -I/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/usr/include -L/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/lib -L/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/usr/lib -release -no-accessibility -system-libmng -no-nis -no-cups -no-xshape -no-xrandr -no-xkb -no-xinerama -no-xcursor -no-sm -system-libpng -system-libjpeg -no-libpng -qt-zlib -embedded arm -xplatform qws/linux-arm-g++ -no-qt3support -exceptions -opensource -no-pch -qt-freetype -qt-gfx-qvfb -confirm-license -dbus -ldbus-1 -nomake examples -nomake docs -nomake translations -nomake examples -nomake docs -nomake demos -scripttools -xmlpatterns -no-opengl -depths all -qt-gfx-transformed -no-armfpa -no-neon -openssl -lrt -I/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/include/dbus-1.0 -I/home/mast/Development/kobo/fs/lib/dbus-1.0/include -D QT_NO_QWS_CURSOR -DQT_NO_QWS_QPF2

Next steps:

- analyse new layout elements
- modify tweaks plugin to match the new layout.

A rather nice person on the Aura thread recommended installing the tweaks plugin, but I've seen no evidence it works with 2.4.1, let alone has been tested on the Aura. Could anyone speak to this? Factory resets sound a wee Cliff daunting.
